Imon plugin problem
(I already posted this in the 'Imon plugin available' topic, but somehow it got lost among other comments)
I'm having a problem with the plug in and the VFD. Let me explain.
To enable the communication from Imon to Girder, you have to tick the "uses third party" stuff, otherwise girder won't receive any Ir signal.. You get the warning "won't function right if third party uses Imon".
But then, next time I turn my PC on, the VFD doesn't turn on.
Worse, if I try manually to launch the Imon_VFD.exe (don'tn really remember the real name), I get a message like "the H/W installed is not a VFD" or equivalent.
If I untick the "third party" stuff, it goes back to normal, all by itself.
If this can't be corrected (I'm sure it can, but when?), is there a way to let the "third party" unticked on start up, but have girder to tick it himself when it's done? I'm sure there is, but I tryed a couple of combinations with command/target/window... without real succes.
By the way, what is the .bgr file for? It seems to hold event definitions, but how can I use it? Can I use it?
Thanks you guys.

I think you can configure the imon plugin to talk directly to girder without the software...
I don't have the hardware.. It might be worth asking the imon people...

Didn't have much time this week-end, but I'll have a try... and I'll let you know.

It seems you can't use Imon applications (imon.exe & iMON VFD.exe) and third party software together (without trouble).
So for my VFD I'm using another software (a VFD plugin for Media Portal).
And it's too bad you can't use other remotes with the receiver and you can't make continous press on buttons (except the pad). That's too bad when youe have such a powerfull tool as girder...
